Antarctica — Even in the most remote place on Earth, there is a need for portable sanitation units. Scientists doing research in Antarctica utilize portable toilets, although they are makeshift buckets or boxes as opposed to standard porta-potty units.
Dirk Hartog Island, Australia — Instant Toilets & Showers was called upon to deliver portable toilets (by boat, of course) to the island located 530 miles north of Perth. It is Australia’s largest and westernmost island.
Presidential Inauguration — Every four years, units are needed to accommodate the large crowds that gather to see the President-elect. It was reported that 5,000 portable toilets were on-site for Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration. In 2016, the logo of D.C.-area company Don’s Johns was covered up, possibly because the name hit too close to home for organizers preparing for the inauguration of Donald Trump.
Sporting Events & Concerts — Finding portable restrooms at special events is not uncommon. Still, there’s something cool about PROs all over the world playing a part in serving the crowds at NFL games, music festivals and other big settings.
